When not defending the Union on the battlefield, we caught up on local newspapers from home and even shared a spare copy of the Rockland Gazette with fellow Rockland man, Captain Keene of Company F, 20th Maine. Everyone was on top of things with camp duties and we had plenty of time to socialize. Company D hosted the joint battalion social as we continued to build friendship across lines. Private Severson worked on perfecting his burgoo recipe each morning, cooking over the camp fire, and Private Ternan continued her excellent instruction on Sharps maintenance and cleaning. It was great spending time with everyone during our last battle event of the year.
Our next event will be our annual living history weekend at Ft. Stevens, August 2-4 and we look forward to seeing everyone there for a great weekend of drill and demonstrations for the public.
